    Default Pack observation

    I bought a pack and frame from the Eureka Company at the factory back in 1981. It does not have any labels at all. That many years and it is still going strong.

    I just bought a Cabela's Alaskan II - Exact same frame, mounting holes, pin locations, braces.... exact.

    So who is making Cabelas's frames for them?

    It should say on the pack...hopefully not made in China.

    Default Nothing

    Nothing that I can see. Opened every opening, pocket and all over. No labels.

    Dave, I think Camptrails might be making their frames, they look exactly like the old freighter packframes.

    Default CampTrails

    I think CampTrails were bought out by Johnson Outdoors, who also own Eureka Tents. They no longer market their CampTrails backpacks. Too bad, not a bad backpack. I was told by a Cabela's product specialist that the Cabela's packs were made by CampTrails in the early 90's, when gearing up for my first sheep hunt. I bought their Chilkoot pack system and the paperwork with the pack was from CampTrails. It's an OK pack, but too big, so I always end up way too heavy. My guess would be that somebody bought the rights to the CampTrails Freighter frames. I would like to find a Dana Design K2 Longbed or pick up a Barneys frame.
